  1. We are going brutal if the normal method doesn't work

    Open the location of the process
    End the task
    Delete the program immediately

    If this method doesn't work you might have to delete it brutally under safe mode

  2. I have a Dell Vostro 200S, it is a PC without doing any modification like changing CPU, adding GPU, or  adding more RAM.

    This PC had a bloated capacitor on board when I discovered it in my friend's hostel, so I asked my friend to solder a same model of capacitor from another broken AMD motherboard which had been struck by lightning.

    Yes, it does boot, but you might need a bit of luck to get it booted. First time I let the power on for like nearly half an hour until the power button turns blue, and if I plugged in the front USB panel's pin, the light will become orange.

    Sometimes it can boot instantly after being switched on, but sometimes not. So the only solution is to keep the power on even not in use to avoid the hassle of luck.
    When it can be booted, I tried to flash the BIOS once again using the file supplied from official website, but seems no luck. Format to another OS seems doesn't work too.
    I saw that it has a clock warning, but I don't think the battery is the cause of RNG booting.

    I'm going to sell this PC because I want to upgrade my main PC to 4th Gen i5 instead of keep using Q9500 which is getting hotter and hotter during idling, but I want to gain as much value as possible, by at least making it work. Can somebody help me to figure out the problem?

    Intel Pentium E2200
    2GB DDR2 (1GB x2)
    WD Caviar Blue 80GB 7200RPM HDD
    Intel G33 Express (Manufactured by Foxconn)

    What's causing Yellow button:
    Slot in an R7 240 GPU
    Connect front USB

    What's the last success boot situation:
    Connected it to extension which directly connected to wall plug
    Boot without VGA plugged in
    Boot without Keyboard plugged in
    Boot without any USB plugged in
    Wait for at least 15 minutes to let the power button turns blue
    Doing nothing, left everything plugged
    (Happens randomly)

    thanks for your help on looking for the m.2 ssd
    just now I tried to reseat the cable between motherboard and the m.2 ssd controller, and my laptop now has no problem with booting speed, but maybe a swap of ssd needed, a bit worry if the physical space is available for my laptop to upgrade...

  4. I decided to change my screen panel while fixing the screen hinge with the new IPS panel (NV156FHM.N41) in. After then my 24GB m.2 SSD shows up occasionally, and I don't know it is the side effect or not, the entire PC is super slow from sleep state, cold and warm boot which didn't happen before I format my laptop. Did the screen panel draws too much power?? Or maybe the m.2 SSD controller is bad?


    Model: Asus Transformerbook TP500LB (8GB ram added, modded screen panel from TN to IPS)

  5. This is my first time posting my issues on any forum and also this forum...

    I have a ancient GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L motherboard, with F10 firmware flashed.
    t is powered by a Corsair 450W 80plus, with Intel Core2Quad Q8400, 2x2GB Kingston 667MHz DDR2 RAM, a TPLink Wireless card and a GIGABYTE GT740M 2GB GDDR5 graphics card.
    On the storage it is running on a Kingston A400 240GB SSD and WD Caviar Blue 1TB 7200rpm HDD.
    The PSU also powering 3 CoolerMaster Sickle Flow 120 chasis fan (Actually there are 4 fans, I can't remember one of the fan model so I just ignored it, the ignored chasis fan I just let it disconnected from power since my PC won't boot or freeze at BIOS as I hooked up to my fan controller.)

    I just roughly calculated it by using CoolerMaster's Power Supply Calculator and here is my result:Untitled.png.64ddacdaf6adda3b5bd43bc389bb2664.png


    But what I wonder is why the BIOS takes such a long time even I skipped disk check or other options that will possibly slow down the POST?
    I do even have the power to overclock my CPU from 2.66GHz way up to 3.2GHz so I think there is a lot of power there...
    Maybe firmware is the possible reason that causing the slow down effect?
